I bit the bullet and installed g++-2.7.2.1 and tried an rpm --build.
It crashed with the following message:
...
+ DOCDIR=/var/tmp/%name-root//usr/doc/packages/w3c-libwww-devel
+ DOCDIR=/var/tmp/%name-root//usr/doc/packages/w3c-libwww-apps
+ exit 0
Binary Packaging: w3c-libwww-5.2.8-3
File must begin with "/": %defattr(-,root,root)
Build failed.

Does this mean that there are now libwww-files all over my /usr tree?

Oh well!  The office is hot, and the weekend is here and my mind moves 
sluggishly if at all...

I'm off for the weekend I guess.  I hope things will be clearer on
Monday. :-)
